SOS Children’s Village Lumbini is the ninth SOS Children’s Village in Nepal. It is located in the brith place of Lord Buddha, the western part of the country. It comprised of 15 two-stored family houses for 150 children. The soft inauguration of one family house was held on 9th September, 2009.
The cornerstone of the SOS Children’s Village Lumbini was laid on 9th September, 2009 by Mr. Helmut Kutin, the then Honorable President of SOS Kinderdorf International.
SOS Youth Care provides quality care to the young people when they are transferred from SOS families. We have a separate Youth Care for boys and girls. They live in a semi-independent setup with the supervision by professional counselors and educationists. Young people are offered with the best possible education and training opportunities available in the country to make them employable and financially self-reliant.
Similarly, SOS Kindergarten Lumbini has been offering quality care and pre-school care and education to the children from the village and nearby community in a child friendly environment.
Apart from Family Like Care and Kindergarten, SOS Children’s Village Lumbini is running a number of programmes in Bhairawa. We provide support to the families and communities to strengthen their capacities so that children can live happily in their family of origin. Through Family Strengthening programme, we are providing training to the family members to generate income, educational support to the children, counsellig advice and guidance to the parents. Similarly, we are also running a day care service to the children of the socially and economically backward community. It provides nutritious meal and support to the children.
